A while back I was looking on the site from TommyMac ( http://www.thomasjmacdonald.com/ ) . I saw the classic step stool. This project was also featured in FineFoodWorking.

I decided to make one to. Most of the time I always make a prototype just to see how it turns out. I had some maple and steamed pear laying around that would be nice for this project.

It was a fun project that everyone will be able to make. Look at Tommy’s site for the instruction video’s!!

I think that it turned out very nicely. Good work.

Love the contrast of the woods as it helps highlight your dovetails.

Very nice indeed.

Nice job, I got the DVD from Tommy. Made a comment on one of his posts once and he sent it to me free of charge. Really nice guy in my opinion and he knows his stuff.

Really a nice step stool and fine details.
The dovetails are really crisp in the contrast.
Best thoughts,

Very nice! I’ve made a couple similar to that design, though yours is nicer to look at. Great job.
